The Cold Silence

Jan 3 @ 2:32PM

The wait until Whiskerino 2007 is just about half over. Festivities will begin on November 1st, 2007. Please check back to the site before then to get the early heads up on registration and any new rules that may be in place.

To tide you over the in the meantime, check out these great shirts:

Facial Hairshirt - designed and printed by Chris Glass. Be sure to watch the informative and entertaining Making Of video.

Facial Hair Club for Men - lots of beards on a grid.

Granted, no one wants their entire wardrobe to consist of beard related t-shirts but if you're looking to have a few mixed in with your regulars those are a good place to start.

See you all in November.

After The Fallout

Mar 5 @ 2:20PM

While the Whiskerino 2005 festivities have come to a close it appears that many are feeling the withdrawals of being disconnected from their bearded brothers. In the downtime between now and Whiskerino 2007 there will be an attempt to keep people together, in communication, participating in news ways, and remembering the past.

First off, the Merch page is open. We've already sold out of the Ryan Hale Whiskerino print and the 'Itch' DVD may be the next to go. Get one while they are still around.

Whiskerino participant C Dub has put together a Flickr set entitled with&without that shows the comparison between clean shaven and bearded. More often than not, bearded is better.

Talks of a Whiskerino book is in the works - just something for the coffee table recognizing everyones favorite photos. So start getting your list together of your absolute favorite images.

Moustache May is just around the corner - so don't forget that mid-April to start leaving the upper lip alone so you can celebrate the glory of the stache when the time comes.

Tweaks continue to take place on the site to tidy things up - so feel free to give a heads up if you find something that needs adjusting. Thanks for sticking around and keep the ideas flowing of how we can all continue to keep in touch, work on collaborative projects, and eventually dominate the globe with the emerging BeardCorps™.

Thank You

The North American Free Beard Agreement Whiskerino 2005 never foresaw the true potency that this years festivities withheld. To put it simply, the Whiskerino was a complete success. Beards were grown. Friends were made.

The next step in the process is often the most rewarding. Friendships continue to grow (and, for some, the beards). These connections are of vital importance to making the next iteration of the contest an even bigger success. Keep up with your new founded brethren as having this event as a common experience in your lives is not something that you can share with most people.

Thank you for your participation and expect to hear of miscellaneous Whiskerino news via email or from this site. The Talkback will remain open but comments and image uploading have been closed.

See you in 2007.

Throwdown Wrapup

Feb 27 @ 7:56AM

Words can not describe how much of a success the North American Free Beard Agreement Whiskerino 2005 Throwdown Weekend was. A gigantic enthusiastic Thank You! is extended to everyone that was able to it out to any or all of the festivities but especially to those of you that travelled a long distance to meet your bearded brethren.

There are likely going to be a lot of photos on the site that will hopefully be integrated in a wrapup gallery but for now we will rely on the kindness of other peoples servers. Remember if you put your pics on Flickr to tag them with "Whiskerino" and "Throwdown."

You know I feel like there have been a lot more beards and moustahce related commercials since 2005. I think we changed the world a little, in a really stupid way.

It's kind hard to explain, but basically it recycles nuclear waste into nuclear power. First of its kind in the US.

This shot was taken at an all-school social at SportsPlus (clame) on Friday, right after tag in the giant hamster maze (think McD's Playland x8) and before a killer game of lasertag. And Byron, the goblins will get a kick out of your caption!

ok Mac. Time to post a picture so we can see how your 'beard' is progressing.

Thanx for the accolades, felluhs. I'd like to thank my dear wife, without whom none of this would be possible. Lana, you're the best.

[clame] for my actual Junior and Senior high prom photos.

Junior year (first photo) I went with a dear friend who is now a lesbian (not my fault, I swear). Yes, that is black hair hanging in front of my left eye... I thought I was gothic back then.

Senior year I went to prom with a lovely girl who went on to be featured as the leg in the photo I posted today. Yes this second photo really is of me - I dunno what happened, but Lana's mom was feeding me regular meals, I was playing soccer again and I was in love... apparently that helps shed 60 pounds.
